One person,  Benazir Bhutto, one death, two Posts, Washington and New York  and two completely different takes.   David Ignatius, Washington Post, came to laud the late Benazir Bhutto, via RCP: Try to imagine a young Pakistani woman bounding into the newsroom of the Harvard Crimson in the early 1970s and banging out stories about college sports […]
